Another tote

First I want to say thanks to everyone for the support regarding my feelings on Mother's Day. It was hard but I'm so thankful for understanding blog friends!

 I made up this bag for my MIL. DH chose the fabrics but was not a lot of help on how he wanted it to look, he'd asked me to make it for her for Mother's day.

I have to admit I'm not happy with this one. I don't like the fabrics and it just didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. I do like the double pocket on the front though. I know I'm self-critical but this really didn't work out.
 I think I'm going to have to make another one because this one is just not doing it for me. I think I'll give her both though...this could work for grocery shopping etc. It is pretty big.

I think tomorrow I'm going to work on something just for least fun for me.
